The European Union (EU) Horizon project MegaRoller has completed an advanced structure interaction Wave Energy Converter (WEC) model as part of a scheme to develop wave energy systems.

The MegaRoller project will develop a 1MW power take-off system (PTO) for wave energy converters. It will work with oscillating wave surge converters (OWSCs), which use bottom-hinged panels to follow the surge movement of water in the nearshore area at a depth of 10-25m.
